I couldn't leave Vienna without visiting the Sigmund Freud museum (or so I thought). Well thank goodness I didn't have to sacrifice going somewhere else to visit here. There is not much there of substance. Lots of writings, news articles, a couch, tables, chairs and some memorabilia. This is a reading museum and not really enough to warrant spending too... More

If you have an interest, it is worth the walk or ride. The museum is small - his former home and office. There are some interesting artifacts, including a display of the content of postcards he wrote to his wife while on his travels. The consulting room is set up as it was when he worked there. We stopped in... More

I have a doctorate in counselor education. That is, I teach counselors how to be counselors. As you can imagine, I've spent most of my academic career studying psychology, and thus am aware of Freud's work and influence on many fields of learning. I was excited to see the Freud Museum. I was wondering how many sites I'd be able... More

I titled my review as I did because I think it's a legitimate question: the man clearly had a unique interpretation of the goings on in the world, and certainly felt strongly about his numerous train rides, so he would probably have a field day reading over some of the things written about him and his museum. Nonetheless, this is... More

I am an enthusiastic fan of Freud's work, so this was really a treat for me. The free audio guide was very interesting and even contained the only recorded radio interview with Freud himself. If you already know a bit about Freud's writings, you will definitely enjoy this small and unique museum. The staff were lovely, and the small size... More

Based in Freud's Vienna apartment where he lived and worked. You can see the patient waiting room, the examination room, and his study. Quite a small museum but a lot of information is given on the free audio guide about Freud's life and there are lots of pictures and memorabilia, although most stuff isn't original or in the original place....

This museum was once Freud's Vienna home. It has a great sense of history because he once lived there. Among other things you can see the patient waiting room, his chair, his writing desk, one of "the couches" and other Freud memoabilia, books, photos and the like. Most of the items are not in their original location and have been... More

The museum is in Freud's Vienna apartment. An affordable attraction. Upon entry you are given a free audio guide to wander around.

Just for context, my wife and I are in our early 30s and are somewhat well-traveled. Pretty boring, man. It's Freud's old apartment. They put some pictures on the wall and give you an audio guide. You look at the stuff and listen. I think there are 5 rooms. You can definitely skip this.

If you are interested in Freud and his work then this museum is worth a visit. Audio guide in all languages, lots to look at in cabinets and to read and some achived videos of freud. Do not expect to see his apartment and consulting rooms furnished as it was - this is a museum.
